+ GATHER AMSTERDAM

+ GATHER AMSTERDAM

— with an exclusive preface written for LMBRJK — It’s a simple idea, to gather. Amongst the various definitions one encounter, it can mean: to gain by a process of gradual increase. And when three separate entities – a design studio, a curated lifestyle boutique, and a Korean culinary duo – combine their beliefs, aesthetics...
+ DUALITY with Lotta Nieminen

+ DUALITY with Lotta Nieminen

A conversation during Idea Parade on personal identity, confidence, and where one comes from and where one belongs. Photography by SCOTT ELLIOTT LOTTA Nieminen wears a gold bracelet, a colourful button down print of birds on branches, and a loud green miniskirt. As an image, she aesthetically challenges the somber summer grey of Nürnberg. Off...

+ COLLECTING NARRATIVES with Verena Hennig

How did eleven creatives from all corners of the world simultaneously end up in Nürnberg? The foci is a startling character. The various creatives take to the stage: the striking Johanna Meyer-Grohbrügge of June14 to discuss the details of an inflatable fish bridge; from London is fellow architect Pernilla Ohrstedt, a recent notoriety for her...

+ LMBRJK SADL STOOL

“Berlin, twenty stools, three days, an opening party, it’s going to be SWEEEEEEEEEET,” promised architect-turned-designer Jon Kleinhample, last we ever so sluggishly spoke, slumped down into a brown leather sofa. Several glasses of Slovenian wine with an old friend and design colleague of ten years will have this effect. I was passing through from Berlin...

+ Kinfolk Volume Seven

NO. SEVEN is here, just in time to compliment my morning coffee – a perfect duo as the opening act to the weekend. And this one even promises ice creams! I’ll keep this one brief as a teaser for the latest issue of Kinfolk: A Guide For Small Gathering. Stay informed here for a lengthier...
+ Gather Journal

+ Gather Journal

From the racks of Do You Read Me?, it was Gather Journal asking to be plucked this time. Though meant as a gift, I couldn’t help but photograph the pages created by Michele Outland and Fiorella Valdesolo. It brings together concise recipes with delicious imageries and instills the inspiration to wine and dine in the...

+ Gauging Instruments

Every so often, I come across a watch that takes my breathe away. Say what you want, you know it’s true as well. That’s why “the watch” is on your wrist…or you wish it were. So I scrambled for my camera when Jon Kleinhample – the wood loving maniac behind LMBRJK – sauntered out of...

+ Railed Ring 17.825

Out of a basement design studio comes the freshly fabricated Railed Ring 17.825 by GabrielDesigns in conjunction with Brussels-based LMBRJK Studios. Product Details: 19 layers of 1mm Slovenian spruce wood – wine designed (whilst listening to Andrew Lawrence), sized to 17.825mm diameter, laser cut, glued, hand sanded, and rubbed down with teak oil finishing. More...
+ FRAMExAN+

+ FRAMExAN+

Fear not, the title is not some mystical formula of letters for a chemical explosion. Rather, it represent the latest issue of FRAME Magazine (no. 88 to be exact) featuring Israeli architects AN+. In their white washed Florentin studio, we snuck a rare photo of Avital Gourary and Natanel Elfassy away from their office desks....
+ GABRIELDESIGNS xLMBRJK

+ GABRIELDESIGNS xLMBRJK

“Cards for the blind.” Or so they’ve been nicknamed. But lasercut on black stock, these calling cards for GABRIELDESIGNS were a collaboration with Brussels-based fabricator LMBRJK. Though specialising in hand-fabricated product designs, Jon Kleinhample of LMBRJK also operates the laser-cutting service CUTSHOP. Using a 80W Co2 machine, this gig will supposedly laser anything from wood...

Leaned up against an inner courtyard of Tel Aviv, this custom piece is a machine you wish you had. Or at least one that will make you feel infinitely superior and cool whilst riding. And not just because of the supple BROOKS saddle but because of all the small details that separate this bike …...
